Tammy Ruggles


Being a legally blind freelance writer, artist, and photographer has its challenges, but I find ways to make it work. I write short stories, articles, e-books, audiobooks, screenplays in the YA, grade school, and preschool genres--just about all of it; and have over 300 publishing credits and counting. They can be found all over the web if you search my name, or my pen name, Miss Tammy. I create the cover art for a lot of my titles. My first paperback book, Peace, was published by Clear Light Books in 2005.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I LOVE writing YA, and have written a lot of stories in the genre, but this time I wanted to do something completely different, which was a horror comedy. I couldn't let this idea go.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think it's that part in me that likes to try new things. I'm published traditionally all the time, but I don't want to rule out indie or self publishing. It's a route I can't ignore. I think there's room enough for both.

    Dear Mrs. Haynes, I left a review of this book at FB, but wanted to leave one here too. I like your fresh, easy style, natural dialogue, and snappy pace. It was enjoyable story and the mystery very intriguing. I wish I'd discovered you a lot sooner. Sincerely, Tammy
